Friday, March 11, 2011

A new collection of essays co-edited by DITA’s Director Jeremy Begbie has been published by Eerdmans.

Described by John D. Witvliet in the afterword as “a burst of cross-disciplinary energy and insight that can be celebrated by musicians and theologians, music-lovers and God-lovers alike,” Resonant Witness brings together essays touching on J. S. Bach, Hildegard of Bingen, Martin Luther, Karl Barth, Olivier Messiaen, jazz improvisation, South African freedom songs, and more.

The collection arose from a Music and Theology Colloquium, established in 2001 and chaired by Dr Begbie, which brought together musicians, theologians, philosophers, historians and music theorists, from the UK, Germany, and the U.S. to engage in a conversation between theology and the musical arts.
